Easy Cajun Wings Recipe



2½ tsp Cajun seasoning
1½ tsp paprika
1½ tsp dried oregano
900 g chicken wings or drumettes
½ cup orange juice
¼ cup mild hot sauce
¼ cup fresh lemon juice
2 Tbsp Worcestershire sauce


  1. In a small bowl, combine Cajun seasoning, paprika, and oregano.
  2. Place wings in a large shallow dish or resealable plastic bag. Add Cajun spice mixture, tossing well. Add orange juice, hot sauce, lemon juice, and Worcestershire sauce, mixing well.
  3. Cover or seal and refrigerate, turning occasionally, for 4 hours or for up to 8 hours. For more spicy flavour, leave wings in the marinade a little longer.

  7. To Smoke: Place wings on smoker racks and smoke for 45 minutes to 1 hour or until internal temperature reaches 75°C.
  8. Serve and enjoy!
